She never treated me like I was different.
Crunch, crunch, crunch
Though the doctors tried to tell her otherwise.
Breath, breath, breath
You can do anything-is the message she taught me.
Swish, swish, swish
The scar down my entire chest said differently.
Step, step, step
Coaches might push her too hard- it just might not be good for her heart.
Pump, pump, pump
I could do anything-but I was cautious-I said no a few times.
Sweat, sweat, sweat
I am going to do it,
because I was told that maybe I couldn't,
because I never believed I really could,
because I am strong and I can do anything.
In October I am going to run my first 5K.
The training has begun.
I can do anything.
